You get a humor point, but loose 2 for the DOF being too shallow.

This guy is just too funny. He does not need a challenge to compete.

The bird's head is out of focus, unfortunately.

...and it sure seems to have a lot to say. I could think of some great captions for this shot - very nice.

I know it's not easy getting this close to a bird's face, but other than the title, this seems to be stretching the challenge. Also, when you have this opportunity, try focusing on the tip of the beak, but with enough DOF to keep the eyes sharp. This picture could also benefit from more space around the top of the head (the neck feathers don't really add much).
